One of the things I like about autumn is that the weather is great for making soups and stews. Especially my grandpa's beef stew. This is pure comfort in a bowl. I had some college friends coming out to stay with me for a few days, so I figured this would be a perfect meal to make, since it makes a big batch. This is one of those recipes that tastes even better the next day, and it freezes really well, too.
